4 out of 5 eggsGood for 32-bit Windows XP

Pros: 1. Got about 120MB/s on USB 3.0 transferring 2TB data at once.
2. Drive turns off automatically when the PC is turned off.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: I am using this 3TB for Mac drive for 32-bit Windows XP. Interestingly, there is no need to install DiscWizard from Seagate to access the full capacity. The only thing that is necessary to install is Seagate's windows driver to allow the "for Mac" drives to work on windows (i.e., HFS4Win.exe from Seagate website). That's pretty convenient.

3 out of 5 eggs10.8.5 Workaround really?!

Pros: works after a os configuration modification.

Cons: External drive ejects at sleep causing Time Machine to fail. Errors with "Disk was not ejected properly".

workaround is to touch the drive every minute.
google: Keep Drive Spinning macos

Other Thoughts: Just OK.

4 out of 5 eggsMet technical expectations, looks good

Pros: - Good price
- Lots of storage
- *No need to reformat for Mac use*
- Includes several adaptors for travel
- Looks good - especially with MacBook Pro

Cons: - Plug takes up more than one "slot" on a power strip

Other Thoughts: Had quite the debate between this product and a similar drive with an all-alumninum enclosure. While I thought the other product looked better at the time, I went along with this one because of price. In the end, I am very happy with the purchase - it actually looks very nice sitting next to my MacBook Pro (I keep it plugged in all the time for periodic Time Machine synching).

1 out of 5 eggsupdate again:

Pros: ...

Cons: power block attached to the bottom of drive stopped working. detached and plugged straight to motherboard & psu and drive showed up as blank RAW drive, all data lost.

Other Thoughts: seagate has been giving me the runaround about help. keep offering data recovery services BUT: you only get a demo version of the service. if data is recoverable you have to pay $99.00 to actually TRY and recover it, no guarantees it will be usable data.

4 out of 5 eggsSecond was a winner

Pros: 3T duh. Who doesn't need 3000GB

Cons: My first drive was defective and I had to send it back to newegg. The second one I receive works 100% fine and does what I need it to.

2 out of 5 eggsupdate for BackupPlus 3TB

Pros: large. USB 3.0. nice looking.

Cons: after a couple months of normal use:
problems being recognized at boot and after wakeup a lot of the time.
1 partition is now undetected by Windows 7 desktop or Windows 8 laptop. a 2nd partition is undetected some of the time.
speeds have started to drop from around 100MBs to around 20MBs over USB 3.0 some of the time.

Other Thoughts: the 2 partitions that Windows fails to detect are accessible through 1 wireless access hub I have if it's attached but my desktop nor my laptop can read\write when directly connected via USB cables. no options but delete for these partitions in Windows Manager.

getting very nervous about the 2TB+ of files I have stored on this thing. am now starting to slowly move them back to my internal drives and other storage devices before this thing stops working completely. will give it the benefit of the doubt and hope it's just accidental partition structure corruption and will reformat and construct after i've rescued all my files and retest over time.

1 out of 5 eggsThe Seagate Glitch Drive

Pros: It looks great...

Cons: I thoroughly reviewed this item b4 i made my purchase, so i thought! After receiving the Seagate Drive i immediately starting using it. I was able to transfer some files from my both my Mac Pro & Mac Book Pro, then out of nowhere Glitch came to life! This drive would dismount from my computers without any warning! I tried to trouble shoot the issue which lead me to believe that i had certain permissions on my Macs that needed to be corrected. After that didn't work i turned my attention to the Seagate Drive and i reformatted the drive as i was able to at that time bcoz i was in the early stages of file transferring! After reformatting i loaded this drive with about 500 gigs of data and files. These files were very important to me and by now i had a sense of confidence in the Seagate Drive. This proved to be a BIG mistake!!! Now the Seagate Glitch Drive is good for one thing, and that's reading the information that i have written to it. The files have somehow become scattered all over the Drive & some of them are no longer readable! It's almost as if i didn't designate a folder for these items to be put into. Now my disc manager kicks the drive out right away (as if i be darn if you put me through this again) however it now stays mounted with my OS much longer! But im stuck with this useless Drive until i order a relieve drive and try to salvage my information as best as possible, ugh!!! So as i read on all the different sites about people who purchased this drive i started to see a pattern in with a great number of the complaints. Yes you may have guessed it... people all over have problems with these drives un-mounting during a file transfer! When this happens it basically leaves some or all of your information in a none retrievable state! I also noticed that when transferring large blocks of data e.g. 40 gigs or better, this Drive is more likely to develop Alzheimers right in the middle of that task!!! I needed a backup drive 5 months ago so when i got this one i immediately opened up the dam and starting using it... Now i cant put the information back where it came from nor can i discard it! The Drive at this point is only useful to me as a ROM like device, there was an era code telling me that the Drives keys were displaces. Also one more note after all this happened and Disc Utility started to kick this drive out on start up, i installed a copy of OSX 10 on the drive hoping it would let me access my files through it. Now even that doesn't work! So after reading all the other post regarding mounting issues with this Drive, i have decided against purchasing this brand until this issue is resolved: rather it's an Apple issue or a Seagate issue. I have been descriptive, thorough and fair as possible despite my disappointment in this product also considering the money i have wasted. Best of wishes to anyone considering purchasing this product, i'm sure it works just fine in someone's home...
